I disagree about the future, I think AMPE would make some great announcements soon and the stock price should recover. The shorts are quite responsible with the selling of this stock; (read all the fear causing articles they came up with recently). There's still a significant short interest (my comment on why shorts are gutsy), however the short interest is declining. So I think the selling may continue, (interesting how continuously and methodologically selling 100 shares at times can cause the stock price to dive - I wonder who is truly behind this type of selling; the shorts maybe??? hmm... ) but it is hopefully a matter of a few days before major announcements that would cause things to change.
seems you do not know why a stock goes up or down. Short sellers do not make a stock go down. They short a stock by borrowing shares from someone else. The reason a stock goes down is because there are more sellers than buyers. With AMPE the future does not look that good.
